    Can you post a link to this greenhouse kit, Evan??

    Let the rain come… in Topanga? Don't you know it hardly ever rains in the summer in Southern California! Definitely need watering, I would recommend a drip irrigation system as to not waste water, especially in this drought we are in!?

    I love John Kohler but that other dude is WAY TOO Spacy & and stereotypical of your Ca surfer kid.

    love the idea of using the bagster!! 🙂 Can you do a follow up and let the viewers know how well it held up without being reinforced?? Also, how much soil did it take to fill??

    @growingyourgreens I pulled a bunch of squash plants they dried out in the sun a bit for a day but still had some green. I consider that Nitrogen for the compost but it is a leaf so is it also carbon? Explain?

  • sassyleochick 2 years ago

    I like watching your channel John, even more when your guests are hot!!!! Evan where did you get that jackfruit from? I've driven all the way to TJ just for some jackfruit, didn't know it was available here in California. You sure would save me the trip, thanks!

    I would look into a vetiver plant system to build your terraces, amazingly strong and they would stablize that hillside… *oogle it =-) also the sides of the bagster will last longer in you fold some black plastic (ugh! recycle some construction plastic) over the sides to block the sun damage… a challenging site but you are young! lol

    I dont think the bagster works for a permanent raised bed.. I like it more for a compost pile area

    His compost will be fine so long as he gets the mixture right, more like 2:1 browns to greens. Structure it so air can flow. Turning will be built in when he digs out the center of the compost pile (where it composted more thoroughly), then lets the edges cave in and form the starter culture of the new pile.

    I wanted to thank you for sharing your skills. You gave me the confidence to start my own raised beds with drip irrigation! I saw the above video today and I agree 100%. A whole food, plant based diet is the best for our bodies. Given the proper nutrition the body can do amazing things- including heal itself. That is incredible! Thanks to you- now I grow my own greens and save a lot of money and my health in the process.
    You are the man Sir. Be well,

    Have apples, and a lot of berries and herbs. The rest i going to do when my front garden is ready. And don't need the space…. Thanx for making.. Enjoyed it.

  • Roger Keulen 2 years ago

    I do 50/50…. 50% of the food is mine. The rest 'they' can have…I also feed them in winter time. Have birds and little mice. They can't eat all, it's just to mutch. And i don't bother if a little bit is eaten, it's still good food. 😉

  • motv8ed 2 years ago

    That's a fair statement but's he needs to make a living as well, just as ALL the sharing he does. So, having his site be there a couple of seconds for memorizing is a small price (no pun intended) to pay for his generosity.

    Thanks John! Another fantastic video with some great ideas. The more we watch – the more we learn! Especially with your great energy and passion to share and teach! You are making the planet a better place and helping to motivate so many! We MUST share our expertise in the areas that we are best in – – Wishing you joy!!!

    For the rodents, I recommend snap traps.

  • Milton-Charles Wilson 2 years ago

    The bagster won't work because there is no rigid structure to the bag it will eventually start to round out and sag

  • lexicondevil75 2 years ago

    Do you know what kind of plastic this is? I would be worried about the chemicals/BPA leaching into the plants…

  • shazzzam79 2 years ago

    I was thinking the same thing. I would want to make sure they didn't come around my place… rats and rabbits bring snakes and coyotes.
